Spamalicious: Beware the “Advertising Proposal”

I got an email with an “advertising proposal” for my blog, saying a media company is interested in buying ad space on my blog for an unspecified annual fee.  Yay, I thought.  I could get paid for blogging!

A simple Google search reveals they would want me to add a post (not an ad) that they write for an online casino for an “annual fee” of $120.

Hilarity ensues here:

(Seems an anti-capitalist artist is not interested in selling a blog post for an online casino . . . )

To quote my son’s favorite retort: “Uh, no thanks.”
